Marine archaeologist Jack Howard stumbles on the key to an ancient puzzle.He believes he can find Atlantis.The book is filled with wonderful facts and reminded me of a Dirk Pitt navel only with a new cast of characters. A good read as he stumbles though and is chased by daring folks from the other side that always seem one step ahead of him.

One of their earlier books, 1996 but an excellent example of their collaboration. Mount Dragon is a research complex hidden in the desert of New Mexico. It is led by a visionary genius whose goal is a medical breakthrough. Just reading that much, you know there is a problem somewhere and greedy people who want more and a gang of henchmen and all the things that lead you on the chase to the books conclusion.
